Two policemen killed in operation against terrorists in Raiwind

17 July, 2014

LAHORE: Two officials of the Elite Force were killed and four others injured in an exchange of fire between security forces and heavily armed terrorists that began early on Thursday morning.

According to the security forces, the terrorists were planning an attack on the Prime Minister House which is few kilometers away from the terrorists' house.

During the ten hour operation that began at 2:00 am, a terrorist was killed while another was arrested in injured condition. Additional IG Sarmad Saeed said huge cache of ammunition, weapons and explosives was recovered from the terrorist's hideout.

The owner of the house has also been taken into custody and is currently being interrogated.

Acting on a tip off about the presence of militants, police surrounded a residential compound located on Raiwind Road. According to reports, heavy arms were used in the shootout while a blast was also heard amid the intermittent firing.

Despite announcements by the police for four hours, militants refused to surrender or negotiate. It was suspected that the militants had fixed an improvised explosive device inside the house that restricted the movement of security forces.

It was feared that the terrorists had taken women and children as hostages but after police gained control of the house, it was discovered to be false.
